I am in a bit of a pickle.
I have been moving my old web server over to DigitalOcean and in the process, I lost the ability to SSH into the old server. I can’t access it at all as something has gone horribly wrong with my .pem file, or I changed my public key somehow, and now I can’t get in.
Nonetheless, I’m not too worried about that server, it can be shut it down. I just need to be able to generate a new LetsEncrypt SSL certificate for the new server.
But, according to https://crt.sh/?q=sparkbuzz.co.za I have issued 4 certificates for sparkbuzz.co.za on 2018-06-04 which only expires in 2018-09-02.
…so this is causing a rate limit error:
“An unexpected error occurred:
There were too many requests of a given type :: Error creating new cert :: too many certificates already issued for exact set of domains: sparkbuzz.co.za: see https://letsencrypt.org/docs/rate-limits/”
Is there a way that I can revoke these certificates from the new server, or does this mean I am going to have to wait till 2018-09-02 to be able to regenerate a new certificate?
My domain is:
I ran this command:
certbot certonly --agree-tos --domain sparkbuzz.co.za --email firstname.lastname@example.org --non-interactive --staging --webroot --webroot-path /var/www/htdocs
It produced this output:
An unexpected error occurred:
There were too many requests of a given type :: Error creating new cert :: too many certificates already issued for exact set of domains: sparkbuzz.co.za: see https://letsencrypt.org/docs/rate-limits/
My web server is (include version):

I can login to a root shell on my machine (yes or no, or I don’t know):
Not on the old server, login available on new server.
